August 22, 2021

WEDNESDAY'S top lottery prize is now at an estimated £5.4million after no weekend winners – but one lucky punter did scoop £1million.

No one came to claim those lucky lottery numbers – 27, 35, 18, 28, 17, 57, and the bonus number, 51 – during Saturday's redraw.


But one lucky player won the next biggest prize: £1million for matching five numbers and the bonus ball.

Another 61 ticket-holders nabbed £1,750 after matching five of the six numbers.

This comes as no one claimed the Lotto HotPicks £350,000 jackpot on Saturday, though 10 players were able to take home £13,000 after matching four numbers.

In other developments, the winning Thunderball numbers were 38, 34, 37, 17, 39, and the Thunderball was 13.

And no-one bagged the top prize of £500,000, but one player scooped the second prize of £5,000 after matching five number.

This comes National Lottery players are being told to check their tickets now after a lucky lotto punter bagged £10,000 every month for the next 30 years.

They won the eye-watering sum after picking the winning numbers in Thursday's Set For Life National Lottery draw.

The single winner secured the top prize by correctly matching all the numbers – 42, 39, 47, 31, 08 – as well as the Life Ball which was 10.

Two ticket-holders matched just the five numbers to win £10,000 every month for one year, while 27 players matched four numbers and the Life Ball to win £250 each.

Camelot's Andy Carter, the senior winners' adviser at the National Lottery, said: "What great news, we have a top prize winner on Set For Life – they can now celebrate winning £10,000 every month for 30 years.

"Players are being urged to check their tickets and to give us a call to claim tonight's fantastic Set For Life top prize."

Set For Life gives players the chance to win £10,000 every month for 30 years.

The winners get a a total of £3.6 million over three decades.

Players have to choose five main numbers – from 1 to 47 – as well as a Life Ball from a separate set between 1 and 10.

The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 15,339,390.
